There is no word to describe this man other than "monster." After you hear what he did to his own children, I think you'll agree.

For years, this waste of life abused his son (13) and daughter (11) to the point that can only be described as torture. Aside from punching, kicking,choking, hitting with a wooden dowel and PVC pipe, he shocked them with an electric dog collar and jammed small blades under their toenails and fingernails.

According to WNEM, the children's rooms contained closed-off wooden boxes for beds with a small opening and vents to let in air. So yeah, he kept these poor kids locked up in wooden boxes.

When you watch the video above you'll see the kind of neighborhood they live in, which may come as a bit of a surprise. I think when we hear stories like this we automatically assume their home is a dump in a terrible neighborhood...not in this case. They lived in a nice home in a really nice neighborhood.

You can get the full story and truly see he what the kids endured, here.
